Slideshare, a linkedIn company has recently added Haiku Deck to its long list of documents and keynote presentations. Earlier this year it added Video. It is the beginning of the full migration of video, animation and presentation solutions and taste of what may be coming in 2015.
In this 5 point forcast (see link at top and under) of trends that will make a difference in 2015, Scott Schwertly sees the new year being one where better presentation and better engagement win the day. For engagement he expects more creative content delivered with more appeal that ever before. The integration of Haiku with Slideshare points the way. I tested it out with the short presentation below. All images were obtained from the Haiku archives and easy to find as the software monitors the words in your text and suggest meaningful images for you to use.
My personal view is that 2015 might be the end of the static sales page. Animation systems like Explainer Video, and more dynamic film editing software along with dynamic graphic system are changing how we present. Visual technology is moving rapidly to the forefront of all marketing communications and business presentation. Film, animation and graphics are merging and becoming available to everyone. Boring presentation will soon be passe as Hollywood moves to the desktop. As we have noted before The future is visual.
